Description

This letter, dated September 5, 1957, from Commissioner C. D. Bean to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick responds to an inquiry related to transportation for the Three Affiliated Tribes across the Garrison Reservoir. The US Department of the Interior informed Bean's office that the US Bureau of Indian Affairs does not have the authority to transfer ownership of property to the tribes. Bean recommends that the tribes purchase a surplus barge and jeeps as needed and encloses information about buying surplus property. The referenced enclosed booklet is not included with this document.
